Quangos and Lawyers please form an orderly queue at the trough.
I'm assuming that because Britain is already 'in' it will mean that the only question given on the voting form will be Do You Want Britain To Leave The EU? This could (and probably does) mean that if there is massive voter apathy and hardly anyone bothers to go out and vote, then nothing will change. They aren't going to turn around and tell us we are leaving The EU because there weren't enough votes to stay in (due to voter apathy). A bit like saying if no one goes out and votes at the next general election, the current political party will stay in power for another four years.
Surely this is a huge advantage for the the 'stay in' crowd.
